Violin Lessons Should Be Fun!
The only thing sweeter than the sound of a violin is the experience students will have at Rick's Music World. We pair the sophistication of these classic string instruments with an unwavering commitment to fun. We want each of our students to LOVE their music lessons!
Our teaching staff expertly blend a high standard of music education with a creative, student-focused approach that gives students space to discover and nurture their passion for music and the violin. Whether you’re looking to pick up the instrument for the first time or want to earn the first chair in your orchestra, our teachers are ready to help you progress quickly toward your goals – while having fun along the way.
We Emphasize Healthy Technique
Strong fundamentals are key to efficient, effortless playing and optimal sound. We teach students essential instrument care and set-up, tuning, healthy playing posture, bowing, and hand positioning. Our skilled instructors also take students through regular ear training exercises to foster the development of good pitch.
Additionally, we strive to ensure our students become literate musicians through lessons in scales, music theory, rhythm, and sight-reading. More advanced students will build a broader repertoire of technique, including vibrato, double-stop and chord playing; more advanced bow strokes such as spiccato, sautillé, and up-bow staccato; and other higher-level musicianship concepts such as phrase analysis and score studying skills.

Frequently Asked QuestionsGet Started
What’s a good age to begin violin lessons?
Children can begin studying violin as young as ages 4 or 5, but we welcome students of all ages, including adults!
Even so, not all 5-year-olds are ready to begin violin lessons. Whether your child is ready for lessons depends on a variety of factors including physical development, dexterity, and attention span. If you’re not sure, we are happy to consult with you and help determine if your child is ready to start.
While children make up a good percentage of our student roster, we also love to work with adults. There is no such thing as being too old to learn an instrument!
If you have the desire to learn, we have the desire to teach you—no matter your age.
